Shipping containers turned into low-cost homes

'Container' homes

A group of developers from Sheffield believe they have found a way to get young people onto the housing ladder - by building homes from old shipping containers.

A one-bedroom home costs from £35,000 and the converted containers are said to be environmentally friendly - if a little on the cosy side.

The first build has gone on display. James Webster went along and spoke to developer Don Johnson and designers David Garlovsk and Evette Hudson-Kaiser.
